Introduction: Every surgery has risk of complications; prognosis depends on prompt diagnosis and timely management. Objective: To determine the prevalence of surgical complications in gynecological surgery in a tertiary care hospital and to explore associated factors. Materials and methods: Prevalence study with secondary analysis of medical records of patients who underwent scheduled gynecological surgery. The outcome variable was complications reported during a period of less than 30 days. The universe was established, and clinical, biological and sociodemographic variables were collected. To determine prevalence, the total number of complications was taken as the numerator and the total number of records was used as the denominator. To explore associated factors, odds ratio (OR) was used as a measure of association with a 95% CI. Results: 591 records were reviewed, finding a surgical management of ectopic pregnancy prevalence of 3.8% (OR=3.73, CI95%: 2.41-92.52). Obesity (OR 12.47, CI95%: 4.48-33.19) and gynecological surgery for malignancy (OR 3.73, CI95%: 1.14- 10.48) were associated with complications. Conclusion: The prevalence found in our institution was similar to what most studies have reported.
